NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday dismissed Congress leader Naveen Jindal’s plea asking if he could approach a high court to challenge a trial court’s order, in a case to do with irregularities in coal block allocations. Jindal is one of the people accused in the case.
Dismissing Jindal’s appeal to be able to challenge this order in a high court, the SC said no other court would entertain a plea challenging a lower court’s order while a trial is pending.
In the Urtan North case, in addition to Jindal, the others accused are the company, Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL), its former director Sushil Maroo, former deputy managing director Anand Goyal and chief executive Vikrant Gujral. In its chargesheet, the CBI has alleged that JSPL misrepresented the equipment purchase orders and misled the Coal Ministry.
In the Amarkonda coal block case, in addition to Jindal, there are 14 accused, including former minister of state for coal Dasari Narayan Rao and ex-Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda.
